Clergy & Staff

The Rev. Andrew D. Lobban (Andy) has served at St. Bartholomew's since June of 2016. 

 

Andy came to St. Bart's via Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, where he had served for four years as the associate clergy overseeing much of the outreach and social justice programming. 

 

A native of northern California, Andy received his undergraduate degrees in math and physics from MIT, after which he returned to California to receive a Master's in education from UC Berkeley.  He taught math and physics in secondary and post-secondary schools in Illinois and Texas for several years and then felt the call to ordained ministry. 

 

Having completed a Master of Divinity at the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, TX, he was ordained to the priesthood in the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas, where he served for one year prior to returning to California.  Andy's family includes his wife Olga, daughters Lilly and Abby, and son Zachary.

Deacon Jennifer Nelson comes to us originally from a suburb of the capital, Greater Georgetown, in The Republic of Guyana, South America.

After earning B.Sc. degrees in both Mining Engineering and Mathematics in New Mexico, Jennifer returned to her native country to work in the bauxite mines as the first female mining engineer for Guyana and South America. She later returned to New Mexico Tech, Socorro, to complete a M.Sc. degree in Mining Engineering. Upon graduating, she moved with her family to Livermore.

Jennifer was an active member of St. Bartholomew’s in Livermore for over 20 years when she first responded to the call to the Diaconate – a call that, as she tells it, began for her at age 16 in Guyana. At St. Bart’s, she was a member of the choir, a Eucharistic Visitor, Counter, Deanery Representative, Vestry member, and Junior Warden. Over the years she has also served on Bay Area Cursillo teams, and in the SF/SM Secretariat as Rector on the “Serve the Lord with Gladness” team.

In her secular life, Jennifer works as an Environmental Scientist in Livermore, where she raised her two sons, Roderick and Lawrence.

A graduate of The Episcopal School for Deacons, Berkeley, Jennifer now lives in the Manteca area. She is passionate about Latino/Hispanic Ministry as part of her call to the Diaconate and served at St. James/Iglesia de Santiago, Oakland until her move to Manteca. She now feels called to embark in new ministry in the Tri-Valley, sharing her time between St. Clare’s, Pleasanton and St. Bartholomew’s, Livermore.
